VNUE will be recording select dates from the upcoming U.S. tour from legendary rockers Patty Smyth and Scandal – and making them available for download instantly via VNUE’s set.fm mobile content delivery app and website. Fans will also be able to pre-purchase a “Live Club” collectible VIP laminate which will allow them to collect and download any two shows on this tour.
The shows being recorded begin April 26 in Peekskill, New York, and continue through multiple shows on her spring and summer tour.
Smyth is a renowned singer and songwriter who rose to fame in the 1980s with the rock band Scandal, best known for its top 10 hit “The Warrior.” She went on to have a successful solo career beginning with 1987’s Never Enough and continuing with the hit singles “Sometimes Love Just Ain’t Enough” (with Don Henley) and “Look What Love Has Done.” Scandal regrouped in 2004 on VH1’s Bands Reunited and has been touring since.
“As a fan of Patty Smyth and Scandal for over 30 years, I cannot tell you how excited I am to finally work with them,” Zach Bair, CEO of VNUE and “instant music” pioneer DiscLive, said. “The music that she created helped shape the sound of MTV’s ‘Golden Era’, which still endures today, so it’s great to know we’ll be helping that sound live on by capturing every note of these shows and making them available immediately after they finish.”
“Now I can hear what our show sounded like before I head to the next one. And so can you!” Smyth said.
